debate. the first time president obama and mitt romney have met in person in five years. tonight of course, they will share the stage in denver. a coin toss decided the order. president obama speaks first, mitt romney will have the last word. romney ran the gauntlet during the primary. he did 23 debates. the president has practiced five mock debates before tonight and it's not too late to convince voters, there's a new poll, florida and virginia virtually tied. in ohio, the president has a comfortable seven-point lead. last night, conservatives started circulating this video. a 2007 speech that then senator obama gave at hampton university, criticizing the federal response to hurricane katrina. >> people ask me whether they thought race was the reason the response was so slow. well, no, this information was color blind in its incompetence. >> in north carolina, joe biden went off script and said the middle class has been buried the last four years. this morning, they've turned a clip into a web video. >> the middle class in america is hurting. >> middle class has been buried the
here. do you want four more years of obama? do you think this is the right direction? or do you think we need something new? i think a campaign which made that case clearly enough would carry ohio and florida by big margins. >> mitt romney was in westerville, ohio, today. i want to play a little clip of part of something he said and get your reaction to it. listen. >> okay. >> i want to bring the rates down. by the way, don't be expecting a huge cut in taxes because i'm also going to lower deductions and exemptions. >> so he's trying to combine if i take it right the tax and the deficit argument. do you think that's a little too complicated for voters? do you think that resonates? >> no, i don't think it resonates. if you go back and watch the great winning campaigns. they have clear, vivid, explicit sense of direction for the future. the governor's campaigning in ohio. ohio's a state that has enormous opportunity in energy. we now estimate for example that there may be 5 billion barrels of oil in the state of ohio. virtually the eastern two-thirds of the state has natural gas. the ob
and that means offering his own way ahead and, really explaining why the next four years under president obama will be disastrous, shouldn't focus on the last four years, focus on the next four years and clear choice, and really lay out what four more years of obama policies, in terms of debt and, no economic growth and in terms of a failed foreign policy, would look like, and lay out the romney alternative, and, i think he needs to go right at obama. my advice, ignore jim lehr, and, like i do with juan williams... ignore the question and, do not answer jim lehr, speak to obama in the second person, you have failed and here's what we can do differently, to make it a sharp contrast. >> chris: interestingly enough, liz, when i talked to congressman ryan, about the fact that romney needs a clear victory, because of the state of the polls, he pushed back, very much against that. does he need a clear victory? >> yes. he does, i mean, i think there is universal consensus he has to shake up the trajectory of his race and a safe performance will not probably be enough at this point. having said that,
the last four years. >> an obama advisor defended the vice president saying it is the republican policies that hurt the middle class in the first place. the romney campaign targeting the comment in a brand new ad already. we will show you that in a minute. a new nbc and the "wall street journal," parent company of this network. shows the president ahead 49 percent to 46 percent which is in the margin of error. in the states, it is a different coverage. we have carl cameron with the romney camp and now ed henry on what wet tonight. >>reporter: the president is on the way to denver. think how pivotal this city has been to his career. the mile high stadium is where he launched "hope and change," the dramatic democratic convention speech in 2008 with the greek columns. in 2009, near mile high stadium he was at denver science museum signing the stimulus into law which has had mixed results. a big part of his record handling the economy is here. now denver will decide if he gets another four years. he leaned on bill clinton to make the case this is no way he could have turned this around in fou
with barack obama, number one. and that what mitt romney has to do is convince people that four years from now a mitt romney presidency will be better for their personal lives. they understand on the likability question of which the president beats mitt romney so handily, they're not about to convince all these people suddenly to turn around and say, oh, we like mitt romney more than we like president obama. what they're going to try and do is say you like him enough and he can do the job and he's better able to fix things. so he's not going to try and be bill clinton here, i feel your pain. but what he's going to try to do is say i'm focused on your concerns. >> can a debate like tonight's debate really change the direction of this campaign? >> i think it can accelerate or decrease momentum one way or another. and i went back and looked at 2004 for example when you had john kerry and george bush. in sort of late september bush was ahead of kerry by about seven points. after the first debate it was a two-point margin because john kerry did very well. then george w. bush came back and did bette
marks. telling reporters the middle-class has been buried over the last four years not even aware obama was leading the nation and robert gibbs said he was referring to damage the bush had caused. >> we had eight years of terrific decisions, wall street rate teeing its own rules that took place four years ago of which we had to dig out from each day. be clear. the middle-class was buried for a lot longer than we were dealing with bad economic decisions. lou: stephanie cutter contradicted trying to spin them out of the last four years telling another network we're absolutely not we made our predecessors by any means. three days after david axelrod and senior advisor told different stories of what the president knew of the terrorist attack in benghazi. less than 24 hours the president is in a debate with himself. of the daily caller uncovers a tape of senator obama june 2007 engaging in defense of class warfare rhetoric to a group of black ministers. take a look at his controversial remarks from his 2007 speech side-by-side with remarks less than one year later. >> special shout out to my
better, obama leads romney 6 points in ohio and five in florida. with five weeks left, months, years of campaigning already past us, isn't he in danger of losing the rationale for his campaign, that he the better steward of the economy? >> you know, in these kinds of races people really focus near the end. and that is happening now. the president is trying to distort our record and our pro-growth tax reform cuts taxes 20% and higher take-home pay for middle class and pro-growth economic policies, that creates about 7 million jobs. so, the final analysis, people will realize, all the president is offering is more of the same with another round of stimulus and higher tax rates on job creators. we are offering very specific reforms, how do you save and shrink the medicare and social security and prevent the debt crisis and grow jobs, how do you have an interview policy that unleashes american internally and has energyindependence? >> chris: here's my question, though, the fact the message has not gotten through as effectively as it could, so far, is that your fault? the romney campaign'
range of 26 years old now on their parents' health care plan because of obama care, you think that could be a big factor? >> and the way to buy someone's vote in the short-term. if you have zero self-respect it's nice to mooch off your parents until 26. after that when you pay your own way, health care costs have gone up over $4,000 and premiums up over 3%. a and they should know that it comes with a price tag. >> and social security. >> bottom out at 2035 and essentially unless birth rates rise dramatically and life expect tenancy shortens. >> clayton: and you tackle higher education. >> this is complicated and everybody read thomas sole on this, because of federal grants and scholarships and loans, essentially, the-- they have to create prices unaffordable in the market. if colleges don't do that they're potentially leaving tens of thousands on the table. >> they need to do this or vote for president obama, how so? >> you say that social security is not going to work, i won't get a dime and you want it save. interest rates are being low aren't necessarily bad. they're not good when the
with a president romney and foreign policy and next four years with a president obama foreign colorado. what do you foresee as the difference and where are they similar? >> oh, i think the difference will be significant. normally the republican and the democratic party have really within wibeen within the 40 yaro use a seasonal figure of speech. in the case of this president, we're not. he's way, way over in terms of the policy. governor romney without doubt understands that our country is exceptional. he recognizes the role we've played in the world. he believes the world is a better place if we're a participant in that world, and recognizes that it is not for us to go around the world apologizing and ringing our hands. what's called the arab spring is something happening in the islamic world. it's not arab only, because it's happening in a good many other countries as you know well. it's not spring, but it's summer and fall. it's going to be winter. it is a significant shift on the part of a lot of people in a lot of countries, who are encouraged and see the rise of islamist nonsecular forces in
to president obama for two years. >> no one in the united states, you know, less in japan and i hope in china wants to see shots fired over three or four uninhabited rocks in the east china sea. as long as we're concentrating on the sovereignty issue, we're probably not going to get anywhere. on the other hand, the resource issues can be addressed separately, without regard to sovereignty. >> bader says the u.s. government doesn't intend to mediate. he called on both sides to refrain from any action that could be considered a provocation. he argued the violent protests in china against japan's nationalization of the islands were counterproductive, unwise, and damaging to china itself. >> it made china look like an aggrieved third-world country that was not acting like an international community. >> japanese leaders say their claim to the senkaku islands dates back to 1895. chinese officials maintain their country was forced to give up the territory after losing the sino-japanese war. >>> the philippines and vietnam have appealed to the international community for a peaceful and legal resoluti
years of president obama will be more productive in creating jobs in the last four years. so both candidates have a great deal of work to do. the latest polling, derek, as you know, shows the race is tied up. shortly on the cbs evening news, we're going to talk to the president and mitt romney. >> the stakes sky high on this one. therefore the expectations have been ramping up by the hour. do these things live up to all that hype? >> sometimes they do, sometimes not. it depends. as you well know, there have been times, derek, that a single phrase in a debate such as this, has turned a campaign around or breathed new life into a flagging campaign. certainly that might be the kind of thing that mitt romney is eager to do tonight. but in the very first debate, their very first meeting here, i wonder whether both of them are going to play defense and get through the 90 minutes without making a mistake. we're going to see whether they come out on the attack or on defense. it's going to be fascinating. >> we know you will have topnotch coverage at 10:30 on cbs right here. we of cour

[ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >> 55 years ago, a group of r theirs stood up fo an education. >> now the african-american is getting pieces of history from the youngest of those pioneers. greta kreuz has the story. >> september, 1957, black students integrated central high rock, arkansas. newyoungest or a brand cotton dress. today she donated it to the smithsonian's new museum on american history and culture. allows us to tell a story of what young people can do to america be made better. >> the first day they were by violent crowds. >> yelling, a lot of negative things. the rest of the names. ive names. i heard the policeman say to the the car, put your foot to the floor and do not stop. finally, three weeks later, they got in. the classroomn state, too. >> i had to watch what was in my chair because it could be or glue. >> she hopes her gifts will o educate. the museum
% in the less than four years president obama's been in office. what's the president doing about all that? well, he's, of course, campaigning out there all over the country. earlier today he stopped by kent state university in ohio, a place he visited back in 2008. let's take a walk down memory lane and see what he said. >> when bill clinton was president the average family income went up $7500. $7500. since george bush has been president, it's gone down $2,000. think about that. that's a $9500 swing. $9500. that's money out of your pocket. that's money going out of this country because we're borrowing it from china to send to saudi arabia to buy oil. that's what's added $4 trillion to our deficit. i mean, think about that. so we've created a mountain of debt for the next generation that they're going to have to pay off. >> sean: remember, under obama's watch household income has plummeted more than 8%, and he's added more debt than almost all of his predecessors combined. the president doesn't want to talk about his record because it's a record of failure. he's been disengaged from the moment
. >> we cannot afford four more years of barack obama. we're not going to have four more years of barack obama. >> the battle for the white house zeros in on ohio. >> president obama and mitt romney will be in the same state at the same time. >> no republican has won the white house without winning the buckeye state. >> and ahmadinejad addresses the united nations today. >> israel believes you want to destroy them. you said you want to drive them from the face of the earth. it's a very serious question. >> football fans are still fumes over that botched call. >> the touchdown held around the world. >> some are calling it the worst call in the nfl history since the black eyed peas were asked to sing the super bowl. >> andy williams has died. >>> powerful waves create an intreadble scene in a paddle boat race. >> performance and regulations for self-driving cars. >>> would you say he is frugile or cheap. >> the seahawks were robbed of a win -- actually the packers were robbed. thank you for whoever wrote that. >> allen, you're late. >> i don't care. i had a [ bleep ] night last night. >>>
for the fourth straight year. conventional wisdom saying that president obama should be losing, but there's a slew of national and swing state polls that show president obama building a small lead against republican rival mitt romney. joining me now, tameka simms, and lynn sweet. good afternoon to both of you ladies. >> hello. >> good afternoon. >> let's take a quick look at the polling here. president obama up by five in a fox news poll, six in a bloomberg poll, three in a politico poll, seven points in a "national journal" poll. why do you think that the president is edging out mitt romney in these polls, when the economic recovery has been so slow? >> well, it's a fairly complicated answer, and a lot of it has to do with voter attitudes towards the economy, less so than voter attitudes toward president obama or mitt romney. in many ways, voters have gotten used to the idea of a poor economy, even a lackluster one. and they've kind of gotten used to it. a quarter of the people who said the country was headed in the wrong track are still supporting the president. so they've basically got
the republicans run was not a good preparation for general election this year. anyway, in swing states the obama campaign has bombarded voters, as you said, with this powerful ad going after romney for his 47% putdown. let's take a look. >> 47% of the americans who vote for the president who are dependent, who believe they're victims, who believe the government has to care for them, who believes they're entitled to health care, food, housing, you name it, and they will vote for this president no matter what. so my job is not to worry about those -- i'll never take care of them. they should take care responsibility and take care of themselves. >> you look at this analytical, only three or four breaks, romney would be ahead right now, breaks going to obama's side. the romney performance overseas when he blew that thing with cameron. the masterful performance by bill clinton where he reset the clock on the economy. of course, this 47%. these breaks have been going toward obama, haven't they? i mean, i can't think the last time romney got a break. >> reporter: no, really not since -- you have to go
mccain. this year, the kneilson company estimates more than 35 million watched president obama's speech at the democratic convention and more than 30 million governor romney's acceptance speech. but lots of people watching tonight may have already cast their ballots. early voting is underway in 10 states including the battleground of ohio. we have team fox coverage tonight. ed henry traveling with the president. first to campaign carl cammeron with the romney camp. carl, this is his big night. what's the thinking about the mood in that campaign? >> well, they kept mr. romney under wraps today in order to keep him focused. he had a very brief meeting with his senior staff and great deal today was actually spent with his staff. they don't want to leave it in the locker room they want him to come out and bring best game this evening. they are quite confident about it by virtue stepping on to the stage tonight as the challenger, mitt romney has the most to gain. they fully expect by virtue of standing next to the president there could be a bounce in the polls as a consequence of that. havin
the entire four years of the economy on president obama. they would know that average people understand, he came in with a huge burden, a collapsing economy, and they would have -- he would have said, look, the first two years, that was the problem of the president's predecessor. you can't blame him for that. but the last two years, that's obama's. there were ways for him to deal with it. but frankly, it was a very, very difficult legacy for, i think any republican, romney or anyone, to have to deal. >> the romney campaign said it wants to make the election about the economy, and initially it really tried to do that. but polls show that now americans, as you mentioned, tend to assign more blame to bush than to obama when it comes to that issue. 68% say bush should get a great deal or moderate amount of blame. 52% say the same thing about obama. did the romney campaign just, did they fail to take this into account, or did they just fail to address it properly? >> i think it's both, actually, right? i think that in the -- among a lot of republicans who supported george bush fervently in the f
subject healthcare spending rose last year despite the obama administration goal to lower costs. customers with employer-sponsored insurance spent 4.6% more last year compared to 2010. there was a 3.8% growth rate. the department of health and human services insists so far the law has saved, the new law saved consumers $1 billion because it december courages insurance companies from arbitrarily raising rates. meantime, a new industry study shows 20% of small business owners are thinking about dropping employee health insurance due to rising cost. the survey released this summer indicated nearly one in every ten employers plan to drop healthcare coverage for employees. the same day iran president in the u.s. for visit to the united nations, they issue a travel warning for iranians in canada. the state controlled news agency reports warning is iran yas risk canada risk arrest, attack, expulsion and murder. it proclaims that islam phobia and iran phobia have not stopped in canada. "it's ridiculous and 99% of canadians would share that view." they expelled iranian diplomats earlier in month. n
set. he's a failure, the family income has gone down $4,000 in 3 1/2 years under obama compared to $2,000 under george w. in eight years. >> because of that family income, that's not a made up number, that's a government number. i think both of these guys should be looking for permanent middle class tax cuts. permanent middle class tax cuts so that take-home pay will go up. i'll give you the last word. >> i found myself strangely agreeing with your plan to cut the middle class and take away the deductions and keep tax rates for people who make a lot of money like you and i fairly high. i think that makes abundant good sense. but we're forgetting one thing. the biggest challenge may be even more than anything is our debt and our deficit. and i think with governor romney and paul ryan figured out was they can't give $5 trillion worth of tax cuts and still eat into the deficit, which i think is our biggest national problem. >> i think -- >> you're right. he might be able to do it. he might be able to do it if they did your plan. >> i'm telling you. you know, you were a good tax break gov
over the last year. >> barack obama is a very effective debater. >> we know that governor romney has been practicing for months. i think the invasion of normandy took less preparation than he pult into the debates. >> he hasn't had a dedate against a democrat in over ten years, i guess probably 2002. >> i've never been in a presidential debate like this, and it will be a new experience. >> what can we really expect dpr next week's showdown in colorado? joining me is michael, special correspondent for "newsweek" and "the daily beast." everyone says this debate is an absolute must-win for mitt romney. isn't that kind of what we always say? isn't it always a do or die situation for one of the candidates? what's different this time around? >> the only thing that's different this time around, craig, is this is happening at an exact moment when it feels like mitt romney may be falling off the clip. he's got one leg dangling out over there. if he doesn't do something to collect himself and get back up on terra firma and head in the other direction he has a real problem. it's the timing of i
's done before, the status quo has not worked. we cannot afford four more years of president obama. we're not going to have four more years of obama. >>> wednesday, president obama and mitt romney meet in the first presidential debate. the news hours jim lehr moderates. watch and engage with c-span including the live debate preview at 7 p.m. eastern, debate at 9, and post debate, calls, reactions, e-mails, and tweets. follow our coverage on c-span, c-span radio, and online at c-span.org. now on booktv, peter takes about why our economy produces great wealth and great poverty at the same time. he offers suggestions on how to improve the conditions on tens of millions of americans living below the poverty line. this is about 50 minutes. >> well, thank you so much, debra. i am totally delighted to be here and thanks to busboys and poets for allowing me to be here, to talk with you, and, of course, thanks to all of you for coming. i see a lot of -- a lot of friends, some of my students are here. they already got their grades so no -- [laughter] nobody was threatened. this is -- we could sp
. president obama is a very gifted speaker. the man has been on the national stage for many years. he is an experienced debater. he has done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> chris: there were 23 debates during the primarys. >> people are going to see who is mitt romney and what kind of president is he going to be and what are the choices i have. that is what matters in this particular debate and all of the debates which is i know what president obama has done and all of the empty promises and broken promises and know about the ugly stagnant economy. what is mitt romney and paul ryan offering to get us back on track? and i think that is what we will get out of wednesday and if we get that out of wednesday then the country understands the choice they have to make. >> chris: i understand that governor romney plans to make a major foreign policy speech in the next few days. do the two of you think that the president has engaged in a coverup in his and the administration's escaped explanation of what happened at the u.s. consulate in beng
that are not going to work that fit with the narrative that we've had for years that obama is strong. >> can i grant you that and ask, what about the debate? a debate on foreign policy that will bring these issues into the forefront. >> i would love to see obama who really knows these issues from a firsthand fingerprints on the documents way, versus romney who has been multiple choice and really has no foreign policy background at all. >> as you were saying at the beginning, s.e., a case to be made for going into either of these directions, either embracing the foreign policy criticism, going at it hard, trying to use that as a broader frame to say the president is ineffective, or sticking with the economy. i think either decision has a rationale behind it. what struck me as you have, mitt romney today with an op-ed in the "wall street journal" going to give this foreign policy speech next week as the same time the campaign is saying they're not going to change their day to day message. you have them basically not really making a decision between either of those two courses. i think it comes back to
why the next four years under president obama would be disasterrous. shouldn't focus on the last four years. focus on next four years and what four more years of obama policy would look like and lay out romney alternative. and i think he needs to go right at obama. my main advice would be ignore the moderator. sort of like juan does with you. when one argues with me and ignores all your questions around all that. he has to take do not get -- do not answer jim lehrer. go after president obama and speak to him in the second person and say you have failed unfortunately and here is what we can do differently and make it a sharp contrast. >> chris: interestingly enough, liz, when i talked to congressman ryan about the fact that romney needs a clear victory because of the state of the polls he pushed back against that. does he need a clear victory? >> he does. i think there is universal consensus that he has to do something to shake up the trajectory of the race and a safe performance probably isn't going to be enough at this point. having said that i think it might not be that hard for rom
used to be a sure thing. that changed four years ago with president obama the first hopeful to win that state in 40 years from the democrats. the latest polls give the president a slight edge. the real clear politics average has him leading governor romney by 4.5 points. most rates show the race in the margin of error. john roberts is live in springfield, virginia. john, governor romney today focused on the military and veterans in that area. >>reporter: he is working hard to put this back into the red column, talking to a group at the men legion post today. he told them about the potential effect of defense cuts in the looming sequestration saying it could result in the loss of 136,000 jobs here in virginia but it would profoundly affect military readiness and america's security. >> troubled and dangerous world we live in. the idea of cutting our military commit my by a trillion is unthinkable. and devastating. when i become president of the united states, we will stop it. i will not cut our commitment to our military. >>reporter: mitt romney said he does not know how president ob
of barack obama's economic policies linking him to the weak economy that he has presided over four years. i say that because my sense, paul, there are a substantial number of voters. people lo say i think i'm going to vote for president obama. i don't feel that strongly about it, but i don't think mr. romney has made the case with me. i wish i could hear him out before i make up my mind. this is the opportunity to do that. >> paul: that obama narrative is disaster. don't let mitt romney who is just like george bush brings you back to the disaster and some people are buying that narrative. reluctantly because i think romney has not connected obama's policies to the pain they feel? >> forward looking, the president he would be and let him present to the people what the disaster would be in the second term for obama. what would be the case. he doesn't have to worry nice guy and all this. this is the only one and only chance. there is life after the presidency. he ought not to look back and say i didn't risk being an independent. >> paul: i didn't leave anything on the table. what are you heari
in obama's third year. she is 79 years old. she often says she wants to serve until she is 82 years old. that is one her idol served until. you know, she's a human being. she is a widow. she loves what she does and she's got it and she has the brains and the health to do it. she is particularly enamored of her new colleague, elena kagan, and her choice is to be the singer liberal on the supreme court,. >> so i think that she is going to be okay. [laughter] if obama is reelected and it is looking that way, i was not pandering, but i was making another one of our excellent productions. i don't think any of the conservatives will leave voluntarily. that is starting to be a pretty old court in justice kennedy and justice leah -- they are both 70 sixer sold. you know, you don't always get choice. i think that if romney wins, ruth bader ginsburg will try to hold on for the next four years. if obama wins, kennedy and scalia will try to hold on, but you never know what'll happen. >> can you speculate what was in roberts mind when he famously replied that the job of the justice was just [inaudib
'donnell is my guest and prepared john mccain for hess debate with president obama four years ago and welcome to the show, good to have you here. [applause] >> what would you say mitt romney has to do more than anything else in order to go into that debate and come out the winner? >> at the top of the list has to be governor romney has to tie the poor economic conditions we find ourselves in right now to the failure of the president's policies. he's got to be able to litigate the case, make the case that the policies the president has put forward have caused the economy to continue to go down. because folks believe the economy's bad right now, but what they don't actually believe is that it's the president's fault. he is got to make that case in the debate with the president standing on the stage with him, that the president is the one to blame for the economy that we've got right now. >> mike: there's a little bit of delicacy going on. if he acts too much on the attack, it will look like he's showing disrespect to the president. if he doesn't go after him like you've said he'll look deferen

white americans voted for obama in 2008 and had voted for any democrat for president in nearly 40 years. obviously a lot of people and that hope. i think seeing him do it himself is what is so arresting about this video, but usually it is being pushed by white liberals. if you don't go for obama america is racist. that statement by romney. and they do it -- they don't care about the historic nature. otherwise they would have been supporting clarence thomas' nomination to the supreme court. they like him because he is the most left-wing president we have ever had, and they can defend his liberal policies by calling his opponents and critics racist >> i want to read the response to this video. they're calling it a desperate. in a transparent attempt to change the subject, his allies recirculated video of the 2007 event. the romney campaign believe that americans would accept the desperate attacks. it is they who are in for a surprise. your response? >> i love how the media, if this was available before, we never saw it. according to tucker carlson, the transcripts of the prepared remarks,
is down, way down in the obama years and down again last month. income now lower by 8.2%. that is a flat-out decline in purchasing power and standard of living for american households, down. but so far, no impact on president obama's standing in the polls. he leads in swing states, ohio and florida and on the question of economic policy, the president leads mitt romney 48-39. now, this is what happens in europe when living standard plunge, rioting overnight in spain and a general strike in greece, this is the people's response over there to austerity. we've got another all-star lineup for you, watch out everybody, "varney & company" is about to begin. woman 1: this isn't just another election. we're voting for... the future of our medicare and social security. man 1: i want facts. straight talk. tell me your plan... and what it means for me. woman 2: i'm tired of the negative ads and political spin. that won't help me decide. man 2: i earned my medicare and social security. and i deserve some answers. anncr: where do the candidates stand on issues that... affe seniors today and in the
to run against president bush, he should have ran four years ago. >> four years ago, barack obama and john mccain faced off in a first debate that was nearly canceled when the republican suspended his campaign because of the meltdown on wall street. the day of their second debate, the stock market dropped 500 points. >> now the troubles are spreading. the market took another dive today, and there are some big names now involved. >> reporter: the day of the third debate, the stock market dropped over 300 points. >> fear that the country could be entering in one of the most serious recessions in decades, led by wall street's 700-point sell-off. >> now four years later, the president who faced john mccain in those debates and beat him faces his new republican challenger for the first time. >> i'm looking forward to head to head. >> an mirror image of '08, a campaign is chaotic mash. new issues, new controversies, every day. the polls are bad for romney and good for obama in the swing states. but the national numbers are as tight as they get. the primaries are over, the conventions ar
to 35-year-olds. those that had hope and dreams who voted for obama four years ago. they're seeing their economic futures decimated. there is a lot of people look at the overall picture, foreign policy, domestic policy, energy prices, job market, debt situation and something is not on track. that's what we're seeing. bill: this also stand out too. in our polling. when asked, which candidate would likely take the lead on world events, keep in mind what is happening with libya and throughout the arab world, governor romney is at 52%. president obama is at 36%. what explains that? >> i think it is explained explicitly what happened over last several weeks with libya and egypt and 30 other capitals where our embassies were targeted for attack. let's get blunt. no way to sugar coat this. we have been flat-out lied to. they know they lied. as if airplanes crashing into the world trade center said those were just accidents. anybody with two eyes and iq of plant life knows what happened in libya was not spontaneous reaction to a 13 minute video on youtube. it was a planned orchestrated att
the election. >> we cannot afford four mario's of barack obama. >>-- we cannot afford four more years of barack obama. >> the good news is we probably would not go over the fiscal cliff. congress will hammer out some kind of a deal between november 6 and the end of the year. >> how close are we to that kind of plan? >> a group of senators have come together to try to hammer out some kind of a deal. if that were to happen, congress would put off those tax hikes and spending cuts that are supposed to go into effect next year and institute for dollars chilean in savings by making cuts to some federal programs -- $4 trillion in savings by making cuts to some federal programs. >> thank you, hallie jackson. >> the american league east crown is still up for grabs. it was a tight game between the orioles and the tampa bay rays. chris giminez takes wei-yin chen out. chris davis continues to swing a hot bat for the o's. hort.he o's come up s they are now one game behind new york. comes too late tiebreaking game, tickets for that game go on sale today. season ticket holders can buy them between 10:00 a.m.
to be employed in america and aren't employed in the four years that president obama has been president. they care, too. but we are supposed the believe from stephanie cutter and the campaign that forget the last four years, except when it comes to romney, remember when his taxes we don't know what he did in taxes. remember when 15 years ago he was at bain capital? >> andrea: greg, shouldn't men be upset? think about it. romney was hammered talk about the 47%. there is 49% of the country that is men. president obama isn't talking about them. >> greg: we are so marginalized. he never talks about my love life and how to subsidize my love life. that costs money, too. i have to go pay for that. that is not fair. that creates a lot of stress in my life. it causes me to drink. i often fall down. i'll hurt myself. i have goto go to the e.r. think about all the business of the e.r. because of sexual rejection. >> bob: you know something? nobody takes in account how much it costs, sexual stuff costs. but let me say this. if i were the romney campaign, this would worry me. you say how much troubl
percent . the cure obama years. 10-13. that is 23 percent increase. >> steve: why didn't you make that available to people of 60 minutes. >> would they have use today? i don't think so. >> brian: it was carried over with interest. and he's only responsible for 10 percent of the deficit that is being pened on him. >> you can juggle around the numbers all you like. he said it was the bush tax cuts that created the deficits we have today. i disagree with that. those tax cuts are 10 years old . when they were put in place in 01 and 02 revenues to the overnment and treasurel went straight up and allow us to cut your deficit to scen billion. >> gretchen: he approved the bush tax cuts. >> he approved them two years ago. >> steve: we don't have a tax problem but washington has a spending problem. >> that is accurate . we have a poor recovery of the u.s. economy because of the failed policies of the president. if you had a more robust economy you would have less of a devit. >> steve: the plan that current president made available to what he would do in the next four years. >> he claimms a
obama as a president for four years. there's not much room on his canvas to paint. mitt romney? he's still got a little space left on his canvas. he can show us where he would lead us. >> just how much debate prep will president obama and romney do over the next few days? >> this is really crunch time, right? the president is already headed to las vegas. he has a rally there tonight and will spend the next several days doing debate prep out there in nevada which is, of course, a key battleground state. he'll be with john kerry who is representing romney in his sessions. we're told romney heads out to colorado tomorrow. he'll be practicing with ohio senator rob portman. portman is playing president obama in these debates and it's all leading up to wednesday's big night. fred? >> thanks very much in washington. don't miss the big debate. you can watch it here live on cnn, 7:00 p.m. eastern time. >>> the chief justices will formally kick off a new term on the agenda, some of the most complicated issues of our day. here now is joe johns. >> reporter: right after the supreme court's hea
as you remember he was the pastor for then senator obama for 20 years and had some sermons that were pretty explosive against israel and america saying hiv was created to go after black communities and other things. for the obama campaign that's a negative thing. does it factor into this debate? probably not. bill: you were inside the debate hall yesterday. give our viewers a sense of the setup you saw. what will they see tonight? >> reporter: it's a relatively small auditorium. the area is very familiar. if you remember presidential debates in years past in 2008, the podiums right next to each other standing -- the moderator sitting at a desk in the front. it's pretty intimate. red, white, and blue. and you will see a lot of back and fourth in a small area. you are going to see what happens in the first 30 minutes is going to be crucial. because really all the experts will say you can win it in the first 30 minutes. you can lose it in the 90 minutes. bill: debate number one in 2008 had 50 million viewers. and it ticked up higher with each debate after that at the presidential level.
prepared more than any other candidate in history. >> president obama is a very gifted speaker. the man has been on the national stage for many years. he's an experienced debater. he's done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of stage. >> beth myers said president obama is widely regarded as one of the most talented political communicators in modern history. the obama camp likes to remind voters that the president hasn't had as much time to prepare for the debates because he's busy being commander in chief. when it comes to just how much debates matter, it depends. >> most often debates don't make that big a difference. very few candidates ever win an election with a debate, but quite a few have lost an election with a debate. so it can matter. >> these match-ups can produce some memorable lines. like in 1980 between then-governor ronald reagan and president jimmy carter. >> there you go again. >> and lord benson's candidate in 1908. >> i knew jack kennedy. jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no jack kennedy. >> then there were moments to see
to be worse off than me, why is president obama four years into his term, why is he out front? >> because people haven't been convinced that mitt romney is any better. in fact, when we take the uncommitted voters we were talking about, most of them say, the economy is not going to get better if barack obama is reelected only 14% thinks there will be an improvement in the economy if the president is reelected. only 28% think that things get better if mitt romney, he has not closed the sale things would be any different if he was president. stuart: i think your tracking poll is one of the most accurate out there. >> always great to be with you, stuart. stuart: 9:50 eastern, here is the gold report. 1,790 po 1,790.70. close to 1800 bucks. off $16. dow up, oil up, gold up. we're less than 15 minutes away from the latest read on the economy and that would be, and that comes before friday, and the big jobs report. we're going to cover all of it for you, 0 i believe, and i will give you my take on the latest bubble. it's not what you think. coming up next though, a fortune, and misfortune, and r
president obama met separately with more than a dozen world leaders. this year he had no such meetings scheduled prompting criticism that he's more focused this year on campaigning than goff earning. hillary clinton met with 20 world leaders in his place. diane. >>> thank you so much from the white house, jake tapper tonight. >>> and now we move on to football, and the split second call that had everyone up in arms today. professional football referees are locked out in a contract battle with the nfl and their replacements have been called in some pretty amateur venues. last night was not pretty. here's dan harris. >> reporter: there are eight seconds on the clock the seattle seahawks are losing to the green bay packers. and the seattle quarterback throws a hail mary. >> fought for by tate with jennings, simultaneous. who has it? who will they give it to? touchdown! >> reporter: look at what the two replacement referees do. one of them rules it a touchdown while the other signals something entirely different. >> to me, it looks like a jennings interception. >> reporter: moments later,
and many of the people in that area opposed the use earlier this year. >>> the obama campaign says don't expect any zingers from the debate. he talked about the upcoming showdown during a rally yesterday. >> what i am most concerned about is having a serious discussing about what we need to do to keep the country growing and restore security for hard working americans. john mccain has debated for mitt romney and he is not expecting any major break throughs this moment. >> i can't remember whether it was the last time it was one of these comments that grabbed everybody's attention. he turned the race upside down and the debate will be campaigning in colorado today. >> well one week from today, he returns to raise some campaign cash. he will be hosting a dinner in san francisco and that dinner will be followed by a concert. they go up to $7,500 for premium seats and a chance to take a picture with the president. musical guests have not been announced. >>> there are several new laws here and coming up, the bills the governor approved on the last day to act. >>> today is the third straight
years. more women are unemployed under president obama. more than five and a half million won can't find work. that's what obama's policies have done for women. welcome, daughter. [ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >> new developments from herndon, where a family of four was spent on dead. >> they say it was murder- suicide. albert peterson shot his wife and two children before shooting himself. there will be a memorial in herndon this evening at floris church. >> the students and adults are all expressing the same grief, which is they feel part of their life has been diminished because the family is not here anymore. >> co-workers were concerned that the adults had not been at work for two days, and investigators are trying to figure out what may have led to the murder-suicide. >> and a new date set for kwame brown. the reasons for the hearing are unknowns. he was found guilty of fraud and resigned as council chair. he is continuing to cooperate with prosecutors. and another executive has so far run up $20,000 in legal fees in an ongoing di
a 161 billion deficit and then blows out a trillion in the obama years and the affect of all of those policiless had taken place. and the big change if you look at the trajectory of government is a massive spending increase. he took us to a new level . 24 percent of the economy consumed boy the federal government. historically it was under 20. >> if he wins reelection we have fur more years and trillion worth of new deficit going on the deficit. >> yes 10 trillion . i don't know how we are going to pay for this . inheritance and his successor is going it inherit a problem. >> gretchen: this is before obama care? >> thos a great point. we had massive stimulus and everything and category of spending going up yet, the big bills of obama care comes later and hasn't showed up yet. and even the democrats who run the congressional budget office said that will cost 1.7 tril yen if a decade. >> gretchen: coming up next. tragedy trikes in hollywood. katie perry exboyfriend now dead after murdering his land lady and dying misterously. >> writing a letter and you will not believe what got him in
% in three years. and going higher under obama care. awful situation. gas prices up 106% since mr. obama took office. a complete disationer. national debt up $5.4 trillion under the president and going higher. a catastrophe and while salaries for workers are flat or down, corporate profits are up, signaling more economic imbalance in america. now, it used to be that economic steps like those would doom, doom an incumbent president. that's not happening this year. barack obama is not even conceding that his policies haven't worked. he is essentially saying they will work if you give me four more years. millions of americans seem to be on board with that as the president's poll numbers are higher than most expected. the rasmussen daily tracking poll today has mr. obama up by 1%, 47%, to 46% over mitt romney. in the 11 swing states that will decide the election, rasmussen has the race tied 46% 46%. 3% remain undecided in the swing states. that's much closer than most of the other polling which talking points exposed earlier this week as being heavily weighted to the democratic side. we here are
president obama took office. >> this is deadly ernst. how they can justify raising taxes to the middle class has been buried for the last 4 years. how in the lord's name can they justify it? >> now instead of focusing solely on tonight's denver the obama campaign is doing damage control even though the vice president changed had. some of the harm done once to the strong middle class republicans are taking the comments and running with it. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years have been quote buried. we agree. stop digging bile electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. >>> the obama campaign is calling that an out of context attack. the numbers they say mr. biden buried line including that that reflect high unemployment rising debt and smaller paychecks over the last four years. >> newt gingrich is talking about. >> newt beginnihe went on the r what he has to do. >>> it is a clear-cut situation. romney has to be clear and factual and stick to his grounds. he has to recognize he's up against the incumbent president of the uni
not hear it. >> in response to the romney video, an obama video surfaced from 14 years ago in which he discusses market forces and competition, but also the redistribution of wealth. let's take a look. >> it is figuring out how we structure government systems that pool resources and facilitate some redistribution, because i actually believe in redistribution, at least a certain level to make sure everybody has got a shot. >> mr. sadler, do you agree with this notion of redistributing wealth from one side of americans to another site? >> i do not agree with that at all. i do not know the context, the full context of what he is saying, but that was 15 years ago. >> 14. >> 14 years ago. i do not follow that philosophy. i do not see any evidence, in spite of mr. cruz's claims, of him manipulating the public, as he suggests. >> mr. cruz, please respond -- do you believe he is saying he does not believe in redistribution? >> of course president obama believes in wealth distribution. been clear is that he supports president obama. this president has engaged in reckless fiscal policies. we hav
. that was the first calendar year president obama was president. after looking athose numbers he decided to do t sur. th tevf ene was looking at when he sent more troops at the end of that year. now, three years later after the surge has ended, this is the level of attacks in this calendar year in 2012. so over 2010 and 2010 during the surge, right, wendured this leofmyti - that's during the surge. we endured that level of enemy-initiated attacks. now after the surge, after all of that blood and treasure and sacrifice, we have a new level which is higher than when we started. so that's for emy-initiated attacks. here's the same number for executed ied attacks. so bombs in afghanistan, right? here was the rather outrageously high numbers of bombs in afghanistan in 2009 when president obama was making his decision about the surge. these are ieds. here's the level now. here's what we went through during the surge years. the interim years. that's 2010 and 2011. so, you know, it's possible to spin this as, oh, look, 2012 is slightly better than last year, looks like it might be, right? that wasn't the po
to america. ur share of obama's debt is over 50 thousand dollars, and it grows every day. obama's policies are making it harder on women. the poverty rate for women -- the highest in 17 years. more women are unemployed under president obama. more than five and a half miion women can't find work. that's owhat obama's policies have done for women. welcome, daughter. [ romney ] i'mt mitt romney and i approve this message. captioned by the national captioning institute --www.ncicap.org-- >> live and in hd, this is abc 7 breaking news. >> good evening. breaking news tonight. montgomery county. newschopper 7 right now rabe's cvs in gaithersburg. this is where a man walked into a store when a man was shot. he was shot multiple times and was rushed to the hospital. it is not sure where the shooting took place. an investigation is underway. we will keep you posted. we are on storm watch tonight. some late night showers. this is really the start of some wet weather out there. abc 7 senior meteorologist bob ryan will tell us. >> they were way out in west virgi
with the romney-ryan plan or it's four more years of barack obama. so even obama did get some good economic news. >> these job numbers show that the president has recovered every single job lost on his watch and then some. that makes the president a net job creator. >> stephen: there it is. obama is a net job creator. so congratulations to robert baird, the guy who got the job. (laughter) but millions of americans are still looking for work. particularly low skilled workers with no high school diploma who face a 12% unemployment rate. now my heart goes out to those blue color workers. all they know how to do is make stuff while we white collar workers have the education necessary to check our e-mail. the problem is, america has lost its good manufacturing jobs to places of cheap unregulated labor like china, vietnam, and the gulag beneath disney world. faster, chakor, they're running out of mickey pretzels. now how-- how is the u.s.-- mickey. (laughter) all for mickey, please don't sue. now how, how is the u.s. supposed to compete with countries where workers toil for pennies an hour? luckily, o
. >> the obama camp says independent groups say if you cut those tax rates for everybody 20%, it costs $5 trillion over ten years, true? >> not in the least bit true. >> stephen: true, not true, who cares? (laughter) it's over ten years. romney and ryan will only be in office for eight of those. let president bachmann worry about it in 2020. that is what hindsight is for. but folks, just listen to this pit bull. >> how much would it cost. >> it's revenue neutral. >> i'm talking about the cut, we'll get to the deductions. >> the cut in tax rates is lower all american tax rate by 20%. >> how much does that cost. >> it's revenue neutral. >> stephen: okay, revenue neutral, chris. but for some reason wallace wouldn't take no answer for an answer. (laughter) jim? >> well, it's not revenue neutral unless you take away the deduction. >> let me just -- >> you haven't given me the math. >> well, i don't have-- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. >> stephen: great answer. (laughter) why-- (cheers and applause) great answer why is it a great answer? well, it would take me too lon
're doing when they make these judgments every four years. i think that's why president obama's statement which he made a year into his presidency that he would rather be a rllygood one-term president than a mediocre two-term president doesn't really make sense because if you're shooting for history, you need to go through the american voter in order to get that good judgment from history. >> woodruff: you also say i think toward the end of the book you point out you think the president really does want to be elected to a second term. there's no question about that. >> i think we see that everyday, don't we? >> woodruff: the book really is a walk through history. we don't have time to go through all the categories but tell us what the most successful presidents have had in common? what do we see in them that we haven't seen in the other presidents? >> the presidents that i call leaders of destiny are the presidents who are consistently ranked highly by the historians and the historian polls the rating the president gain. number two they are two-term presidents succeeded by their own party
haas, let's take an overview. is the obama foreign policy defendable four years later? >> for sure it's defendable. it's not to say it's flawless. but he can point to obviously the killing of osama bin laden. he can point to, among other things, the attempt to improve relations with china and russia. obviously he's got the uwe united states out of iraq. the united states after going up has now come down to some extent in afghanistan. he mdleast,ven though it's turbulent, is more open than it was. so i think the president in general can point to some areas where he moved forward and some areas obviously his critics will say where he movedded back. all in all it's a defense i believe and defendable record. >> ifill: i want to walk through some of that piece by piece. referencing the president's speech today, he turned over a big chunk of it to talking about the difference between railing against or speaking out against violence... violent extremism versus protecting free speech. why was so much devoted to that topic? >> gwen, i thought it was an interesting speech. very reflective speec
trillion. doesn't pretend to balance the budget and $1 trillion a year after year. obama set the bar pretty low. we also 6 unemployment for those 25-55 at the lowest rate we've seen in 30 years. so the bar has been set low but i believe the country deserves a much brighter path. what we'll hear governor romney is reducing the outrageous growth and spending and frankly rolling back the regulatory price tag that this economy has been absorbing. you see an increase of about 279% in the number of major versus the bush. each of a price tag hundred million dollars a year. >> heather: i want to give you a chance to respond. president obama he is the incumbent president in this race. let's take a look at economic numbers. since president obama took office in january of 2009 the u.s. government has implemented more fiscal stimulus and monetary intervention than ever before. g.d.p. has slowed from 2.4% to 12% in 2011 and only 1.6% in first half of 2012. first three that recovery has added 6.7% to g.d.p. and unemployment stuck above 8% and as you heard nancy, 25% of americans age 25-55 still need a jo
of the year, but they will not warn the employees of impeding li offs as it is legally retired to today, obama labor department told lockheed they do not need to abide by the law. telling lockheed it will cover potential legal costs if they incur any benpality, obama administration. clearly does not want those layoff notices delivered just days before the election. >> president obama downplaying expectations for wednesday's debate. saying he is an okay debater, according to a new washington post abc news poll, 55 percent of likely voters think that president will win this first debate, and 41% think that romney will win. joining me now, ed klein, author of "new york times" best seller "the amateur." great to see you, this is cute, the downplay, one of these, i can't think of another moment of modesty on the part of this president other than this example of trying to manage expectations. >> the golden-floated orator is bumbling,. lou: the idea he is such a heavy favorite to win the debate, that has to work in governor romney's favor. >> almost 6 out of 10 americans think that obama will take th

people have been dealing with this obama economy over the last four years. i think we need to talk to the american people about how we can do better with his path to prosperity. >> for weeks, the two candidates have painstakingly prepared. now the real test. >> the message that comes out of the debate will be important. is it is basically a stalemate, i do not think it changes the opinion. whereas if the message is that romney did really well, that will reach and have a persuasive effect. >> the debate will be split up into several set -- segments. we have heard that the president has won the coin toss, which means he is the first question. >> thank you. in addition to the debate, both campaigns have announced new debate with sites where they will be responding to opponent claims in real time. and you can download our commitment 2012 app for your coverage. you can tune in to watch the debate tonight. it begins at 9:00. >> ok, cue the dream sequence. a chance for orioles magic tonight against the tampa bay rays. pete gilbert joins us live from st. petersburg. this is its. >> you are
's recent use of a 14-year-old clip out of context from obama using the word redistribution. that too four pinocchios. but we're not done yet. romney claimed obama raised healthcare costs by $2400 per person. that also, four pinocchios. rerepeatedly claims obama went on an apology tour after taking office. he did not. four pinocchios. romney claimed that 100,000 auto industry jobs have been don't even get me started on that one. i'll just say what the post said. four pinocchios, false. by the way, there's a lot more. the man cannot help himself. now, i would call him a serial liar but that would probably give serial liars a bad name. let's look beyond the hypocrisy and think about team romney's calling the president a liar in advance of the debates. what is that strategy all about? mostly it is about working the refs the media so the media is primed to listen for any falsehoods from the president during the debate. now, as you know, debates are all about managing expectations. remember that george w. bush did "better th
probably in obama's third year. she is 79. she is often said she wants to search use 82 because that's when louis brandeis, her idol, served until. not funny, that's true. and some people ask why didn't she quit earlier to make sure that obama bashing she's a human being. and she's a widow. and she loves what she does and she's good at it. she's got the brains and the health did it. she's particularly and members of for new college, elena kagan. and her choice is to be the senior liberal on the supreme court, or go sit by herself in her apartment near watergate. what would you do? [laughter] so i think she's going to stay. now, if obama is reelected, and it's looking that way, i don't think, i don't, i was not pandering. just making another one of my actual predictions. [laughter] -- excellent predictions. i don't think any of the conservatives will leave voluntarily. but it started to be a pretty old court. justice kennedy and scalia are both 76. you know, do the math. you don't always get a choice of when you leave, but i think if romney wins, ginsburg will try to hold on for the next fou
policy. >> you realize this year's worse than last year, right? >> i know you're an obama insider. >> no, i'm an outsider. >> does president obama understand the federal reserve? the reason i ask is does he know what bernanke's doing? the reason i ask this is that most people only recognize a third to a half of the intelligence reports. >> he's too good for that. most people have reported that he's only gotten and he got it online through his ipad. do you think he understands, do you really think he understands what's going on in the federal reserve? >> i do. any about the operations of the white house, if i get a little kind of in the weeds with you guys here. >> not too much. >> they have a council of economic advisors, they've got the domestic policy council. is obama really going to be able to articulate a defense on fiscal policy. i haven't heard him give any speech where he seems to be in the weeds on this. >> i thought he was a tough campaign strategist. >> now, look, if he takes my advice, which he won't do. i would talk about the following. i have a bill that all kinds of econom
determine the outcome here. barack obama's victory here in north carolina four years ago was the first by a democrat since 1976. it was helped in large part by a huge turnout by african-americans, a whooping 72%, well above the national average. but his win here was his slimmest margin in the country. a mere 14,000 votes. it looks like he'll have to do as well or better among blacks and other voters in this deeply divided state. the task is made harder by the hit north carolina took in the recession. unemployment was 9.7%, fifth highest in the country. the rate for african-americans is nearly double. and the state has seen enormous change. demographically with the reverse migration of blacks returning and an influx of hispanics and other new residents. and economically. u.n.c. professor and long time political reporter says north carolina is moving in two directions at once >> the up escalator in this state is the economic diversification into higher-wage, higher-skill, research and development, biotechnology. the down escalator is the collapse of the traditional industries of textiles
